If we do take the train, I think my husband can take the express directly to Grand Central.
Is it possible to take the Hudson line if we live in Scarsdale or other towns not close to the Hudson river? What I mean here is how is the traffic to the Tarrytown or Irvington train station from like say Scarsdale? Or is it possible to get a parking if not living in the town?
Many thanks
No the scarsdale station is served by the harlem line and only the harlem line. The hudson line is well the hudson along the hudson riverfront. The traffic is killer so I would recommend using BX12 SBS at fordham then use 1 train at 207th street station your husband uses the express. You use the local. Look at the schedule of the metro-north

She knows that. That's why she asked how the drive was to Tarrytown or Irvington.

In any case, traffic may be bad, but I doubt it would be faster to take the Harlem Line to Fordham and then take the Bx12 to the (A) or (1). In any case, Google Maps has a function where you can see how traffic is (hover over "Satellite" and then click "Traffic"), so you can use a backup plan if necessary.

If you lived in Irvington and drove to Columbia, it would take about 40-45 minutes. You would take the Saw Mill to the henry hudson. There is minimal traffic on the Saw Mill. Taking 287/ Deegan is awful. I95/Cross Bronx is worse. I take the Saw Mill everyday and I hit very little traffic. I would look at towns on the Saw Mill.
